Old tapes recorded wont track speedup slow down


Hello; This can be a very complicated issue. The simplest, is a dirty control track head located on the output (or right side of the drum containing the video heads). It is just before the pinch roller. Clean well with isopropyl alcohol 91%. The second likely thing is a damaged tape, that has a creased bottom edge caused by a defective VCR that has excessive reel takeup torque that causes this tape to crease while playing it. Open the cassette door where the problem is and check the tape for a bottom crease. usually about a crease 1/32 of an inch or more from the bottom. Tapes that are creased cannot be saved. John

How do i adjust tracking. tapes roll. used a cleaning tape, didn't help. there is no switch for manual tracking.


Cleaning tapes are not as good as going in with a can of Servisol Video 40 and some cotton buds. Take the top cover off and give it a really good clean with them. Clean everywhere the tape touches. Make certain you allow to dry before trying again. If that doesn't work you could have a faulty head.
PS it will take longer to clean if it is housed in a room where people smoke!

Clock will not keep time


Aside from resetting the time to the correct time every once in a while, it's not worth fixing. I have a sharp vcr that the clock starts to run fast 2-4 weeks after i set it.

And another thing to check is to make sure the VCR is not plugged into a socket that activates with a wall switch that you might turn on and off everyday.

Timer recording, more than 1 show


I have no solution how to fix it. My idea is . Use the One-touch timer Recording (OTR) on page 27.
If your manual is the same as mine. My VCR recorder is broken.

Tracking


A CONSTANT streak anywhere on the screen could be a scratch in the tape itself. Losing sound, and ocassionally everything going to black and white, sounds like a dirty control track head.(The audio and control track are in the SAME head (a 3/4" metal cube that the videotape travels on). The control track section is on the upper part, and the audio on on the lower part.

If the control track head's dirty I'm sure the rotary head's dirty too! Losing audio and have tracking problems, point to dirt. And you MAY have SO much dirt built up on that head it's scatching your tapes (unrepairable), and causing you problems. Make sense?

Tracking


Does this happen on ALL tapes?

Depending on WHICH model VCR you have (old or new) SOME have a switch which will allow you to adjust tracking MANUALLY. When the switch is in the manual position, it won't track automatically. If some played with that switch, that could cause your problem.

ALSO, do you have a cleaning tape? If the control track head is dirty, it won't see the "control track" (which gives you VCR information to control the tracking.

Another possibility is one of the video heads (there's 2 or 4) is dirty, and without ENOUGH video signal coming off the heads, it's not possible to track properly.

Try running a cleaning tape through. If you've never done it, it might be time. Unless yu know about equipment I'd wouldn't suggest you open the machine and clean it yourself. Let me know how you make out.
